This is the hands-on learning we’re talking about:

It doesn’t get any more hands-on than this! A world-class recording studio stocked with all the gear you ever dreamed of, with a top-shelf industry pro mentoring you on how to use all of it! Don’t kid yourself—you’ll never get this kind of access to this kind of gear in a classroom, let alone figure out how to actually use the gear. Ask questions, try things out, make mistakes—it’s okay because your mentor is right there to steer you in the right direction and teach you his signature secrets, so you can figure out how to arrive at your own signature sound.

Another great thing about our campus is the history behind it. When you choose one of these recording studios to attend recording school in Chicago, you’re learning in one of America’s richest music hubs, where legends like Louis Armstrong, Thomas Dorsey, Sam Cooke and Styx rose to fame, as well as modern icons like R. Kelly, Common, OK Go and Fall Out Boy. These artists and many others have made hit records in these studios, including the one in which you’re learning the ropes.

Yes, Chicago recording studios are where Big Things happen—so if you’ve been dreaming of taking your shot at being the Next Big Thing, you’re in the right place. This recording studio will be your personal campus, your place to show what you’re made of. Are you ready to get started? We’re waiting for you.
